<p>Embarcadero Bolsters Latest Version of its Goals-Based Testing Solution With New Database Support, Monitoring Agents, and an Enhanced User Interface</p>
<p>Melbourne, Australia – 4 May 2005 – Embarcadero Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:EMBT), a provider of data lifecycle management solutions, today announced expanded cross-platform support for load testing of enterprise applications with the general availability of Embarcadero Extreme Test® 1.8. This latest version introduces new monitoring agents for Oracle® Application Server 10g, Gentoo Linux™, Apache Tomcat 5.x, and PostgreSQL 7.X. Additionally, Embarcadero confirms it’s commitment to open source and traditional databases with the addition of support for the PostgreSQL 7.X database platform, and new automated script support for Oracle 8i, 9i, and 10g. While offering more comprehensive functionality, the test environment can be more easily customised through the product’s enhanced user interface.</p>
<p>“The ability to quickly create usage scenarios that accurately reflect the stresses of real life is critical to the successful testing of complex enterprise applications,” said Robin Schumacher, vice president of product management at Embarcadero Technologies. “With expanded support for Oracle and PostgreSQL 7.X databases, as well as new monitoring agents, Extreme Test 1.8 provides a more complete load and performance testing environment.”</p>
<p>Embarcadero Extreme Test is a goals-based load testing solution for measuring and analysing enterprise application performance, offering a completely integrated test development and execution environment. With Extreme Test, development teams can quickly and accurately isolate system bottlenecks, and then make intelligent decisions concerning resource allocation, production readiness, and performance contingency planning.</p>
<p>“Making sure that our customers can register online and get in to a game quickly is a top priority because system downtime means potential lost revenues,” said Mark Rizzo, vice president of operations and platform development at Perpetual Entertainment, a San Francisco-based producer, publisher, and operator of networked multi-player games for the PC and next-generation videogame consoles. “It’s absolutely critical that our web applications be rock-solid from the moment they go live. Extreme Test’s goals-based testing environment allows us to successfully simulate real-world usage and make our web application as bullet-proof as possible before it is deployed.”</p>
<p>Key new features of Embarcadero Extreme Test 1.8 include:</p>
<p>• Automated script support for Oracle 8i, 9i, and 10g, which significantly reduces the amount of time needed to create use cases for accurately testing the speed and capacity of Oracle databases.</p>
<p>• New monitoring agents for Oracle Application Server 10g, Gentoo Linux, Apache Tomcat 5.x, and PostgreSQL 7.X, expanding testing capabilities across multi-tiered software solutions.</p>
<p>• Testing and monitoring of PostgreSQL 7.X databases, allowing transaction analysis for the discovery of bottlenecks in performance before they become major problems.</p>
<p>• Enhanced, intuitive, and easy-to-customise user interface for better administration of your testing environment.</p>
